A Quiet Place Review By Corey Floyd


horizontal line

A few weeks ago I came across a trailer for a quiet place. It looked like a typical family film but then a kid got mauled for playing with a toy car. Okay, you have my curiosity. Then I saw John Krasinski was in it with a killer beard. Naturally, I was a huge fan of the prankster from the office so I knew I had to see it. Whenever you get funny actors playing serious parts you get gold.

The movie takes place somewhere in mid-America about 2 years after an alien attack. To keep the mystique of the creature there is no origin story behind it. Only a few things are known about them. They are blind and they kill anything that makes a sound. So John and his family live out there days surviving in silence. His wife is played by his real-life wife Emily Blunt so their chemistry is natural. Her character is pregnant and it looks like she could go into labor any minute. The kids fit in with no problem it actually adds more to it since their oldest daughter is deaf and uses a hearing aid. The most important member of the cast is sound. The is very little sound and dialogue throughout the film so it’s a very visual experience. Luckily I was a viewing with very few theater eaters and cell phone douchebags. Every scene tells a story from the quiet walks on sand that they put down to get around everywhere to the board game with soft handcrafted pieces so the children can have a small attempt at a normal life. Since one of their kids is deaf ASL ( American sign language) is used for most scenes.


The cinematography is breathtaking and the sound engineer role is just a pivotal as the director. The Director is John Krasinski who had only directed one other film prior as well as a few episodes of The Office. He also Jacked, that plus the beard I can help see him as a live-action snake for Metal Gear Solid. You might have noticed that I have shown you any pictures of the creature. That is intentional I love the design of the creatures so much I think you need to get your butt to the movies and see it. I will say this if you think the Demogorgon from Stranger Things was nasty this is like his cousin that he doesn’t talk about. Its completely CGI and I understand why. I don’t think practical would have got this right. The 17 million dollar movie has already made its money back and some. I agree with the rest of the critics best horror movie of 2018. I'm glad I went to see this instead of truth or dare. I give this a 4.5 out of 5. I hope when you see this there's not some jerk making too much noise.

Casting Thoughts By Corey Floyd

Recently John Boyega was seen at Marvel Studios and no one has heard anything since. My thoughts were in the air but an artist Boss Logic made something that got me thinking.   Now hear me out I know it sounds crazy but now that I see it in front of me it’s not crazy at all. We have seen the body transformations from Marvel before. John is in good shape but he’s not in Marve shape in a few months he could be the next Blade. Now I know there a few thousand of you out there yelling “Wesley Snipes is the only Blade blah blah blah “ I like Wesley I really do but at 55 I don’t see him moving like he used to and it’s time for younger blood. He wasn’t even moving like his old self in Blade Trinity.
I’m digging into Iron Heart again. Now a while back I had a few choices on the matter you can check them out here http://www.amerimewire.com/2017/05/whos-next-part-two.html but after watching Black Panther I have a new idea. What if Shuri became Iron Heart? It’s not a far-fetched idea. What if Sta…

Made in Abyss Discussion

BY LUIGGI CAVANNA The Final Episode
“This anime season was a little bit underwhelming”, those were my thoughts at the beginning of the season if I recall correctly. I did talk about three different shows of this season in my blog “The Anime Season So Far”, but let me say that “Gamers” didn’t quite recover after episode five, and “Tsurezure Children”, even though stay consistent, was still just a romance anime and if you are not into romance you were shit out of luck. So aside from two-day specials like “Owarimonogatari” or recurring anime like “Boku no Hero Academia” there wasn’t much out there, except for…



Of all the shows from this season, “Made in Abyss” was the one I waited for, every week, with the most anticipation. This show left such a mark on me that I have to talk about it, so I decided to create another segment like “The Anime Season So Far” and name it “The Final Episode”. In this segment, I’ll take a second look at one anime near the ending of a season, in which I’ll discuss…

BIG MOUTH!!! LOL ( Spoiler Free)

By Corey Floyd




About  a month ago I came across a trailer for Big  Mouth. It comes off as a cartoon about a group of kids hitting puberty. Which is sweet, awkward and Innocent. But then I heard that Nick Kroll ( The Kroll Show, the League) and John Mulaney I knew this was gonna be some wild stuff. This show is a very wild ride and I loved every minute. Let me break down why this is the show you need to see.
The cast consists of some of the funniest people on television. As I already mentioned Kroll & Mulaney are writers as well as two of the main characters Andrew & NIck. Jessi Klein ( writer for Inside Amy Schumer) plays Jessi ( I know right) a young woman who has just hit puberty and not sure what to do and you meet her her new friend. Missy voiced by Jenny Slate ( Bellwether from Zootopia) who is the most level headed of the group. Then you have the wild card Jay played by Jason Mantzoukas ( Sad sax guy from regular show,  Eagle wing Kroll show) he lives in a house of aggress…
